For some reason I thought Sentai got Sister New Devil. Neat. Wonder if they will dub it. If they do I'll most likely pick it up.

So, what is this "final" version??????

Now I'm having trouble choosing between waiting for the Funimation version or just importing the Japanese 4K version even though both will have english subs.

Im pretty sure that property belongs to amazon. I could be wrong but i dont think Amazon has anymore plans on subbing out their shows to crunchyroll and funimation for home video release beyond kabaneri of the iron fortress

That's a shame if it's true. I know a lot of people (myself included) were hoping Funi would be able to snag the home video rights for Virgin Soul. I alos wouldn't be opposed to them getting Re:Creators as well.

Finally, waited almost a whole year for any kind of news on the Testament of Sister New Devil release between crunchyroll/funimation.

I'm still waiting on Bungo Stray Dogs' dub that they announced would get a dub during the initial Funimation/ Crunchyroll partnership announcement.

The evidence thus far suggests that Amazon obtains only streaming rights.

I doubt CR obtained their home video license for Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress from Amazon any more than Funimation obtained their home video license for The Seven Deadly Sins from Netflix.

Your comparing apples to oranges in my mind. The kabaneri announcement was before the funimation partnership and before amazon started getting a shit ton more shows. They are competing directly with crunchyroll and funimation now for majority of the shows whereas netflix only licenses 1 or 2 shows a season.

Im just not putting my hopes up on a release from funimation or crunchyroll at this point. Not with their current partnership with sentai.

It is still possible, and would not surprise me since they did license Kabaneri, and Scum's Wish has the same timeslot.

Considering the vast majority of their catalogs are dubbed, including High School DxD & Valkyrie Drive Mermaid, I would easily bet that this will get a dub as well.

It's really important to remember that Kabaneri was licensed and streamed BEFORE Strike came into existence. Just because CR and Funi were able to get rights for that one, doesn't mean they will necessarily be able to get rights for the other Amazon shows. Not to mention, no one has announced home video acquisitions of any Strike titles since it launched.

I do agree that they most likely licensed the home video rights from Japan, and not from Amazon. However, given that home video and streaming rights are so often bundled together, it's quite likely that Amazon has home video rights to most of their shows.

Hopefully, Amazon will partner up with a company like Sentai or Funimation to put them on home video and dub them, if they have the rights.

they did confirm a year ago that it would be dubbed when the partnership was announced
